    Nice pics Steve

    Nice photos Steve, hopefully we all get snow soon. My fox trapping has been TOUGH this year and will remain so until we get some white stuff. Here is a good shot of one overlooking the Bering Sea.

          Nice looking cat hillbilly!Good size and color.Probably would have got you about $200.00 for that one.What area are you trapping?Looks like a good year on cats from Glennallen to Fairbanks this year.Good luck!

            Might want to lower your fox snares hillbilly. A large lynx like that shouldn't get in a fox snare unless maybe it gets a leg thru. Shame to lose the income from a large male.
            Steve..........200? Any buyers near you actually paying that?

                    200 bucks is a real good price. Better let the rest of these guys know where that buyer is so they can get that too, if they get good ones.
                    You guys down there are fotunate, your trapping a building lynx pop. Pretty sure mine will be gone in a year or 2.
                    3, all over 200, and you STILL don't have a digital cam? Am I going to have to send you one for xmas? Hahahahaha.

                        sal and martintrapper

                        Sal I have two lines one on Eielson afb and one on FT Wainwright. Martintrapper that snare was set 8in. off the ground with an 8 in. loop. Any lower than that and im wasting snares on rabbits. Im not sure how he got in it but he sure did it right.The guy at fish and game weighed him at 33 ILBS. Im not sure if thats big but i would have mounted him because he was my first lynx. Hillbilly

                          Trapperbob,great pictures!I have been trapping marten in paper box's for years.I like using them because the set stay's working no matter the weather conditions,less birds also.Something I found that might interest you is to cut the first4-6"'s off the box and then make your slots for your coni's.A pair of tin snips or garden shears works real well.The box's still stack nice inside of each other and you cut lots of weight.Since I have no snow yet I pack a 12 box's(6 side by side)on my pack frame.I also found using bungi cords to fasten them to leaning trees works great instead of have to cut and fish wire thru the box.It take's me about 2 minutes to make a set(with the box's pre baited at home)and then off to the next one.

                            Hillybilly,it happens sometimes.I had the pleasure last year of watching a lynx stalk a rabbit and I swear he did the belly crawl forever along a snowmachine trail.When you catch your next one think about a rug(like a bear rug).They look awesome rugged out!Here is some lynx pictures from last year.

                            This one went 38#'s,

                              A few pics from the past

                              Here are some pics of past years. Wolverines are my favorites. But beaver are very fun and the occasional pig is great.
